The first official image for the upcoming sequel to the box office smash of 2012, The Hunger Games was released earlier today by Entertainment Weekly, and now two more images have also just come online.
”These are kids growing up in war who physically, emotionally can’t love somebody,” says Jennifer Lawrence about the uncomfortable triangle between District 12′s battle-weary Katniss, Peeta, and her childhood friend Gale that began in The Hunger Games. ”Katniss thinks she can’t have a crush on a boy because she’s worried about survival every single day. And she can’t be a normal 16-year-old meeting her friend out in the woods and practicing kissing because that’s not the world that they live in.”
The first image shows Gale, played by Liam Hemsworth being grabbed by two Peacekeepers
The second image shows Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) and Katniss played by Jennifer Lawrence, giving a speech on the podium.
The highly anticipated sequel to the 2012 The Hunger Games will be released in theaters on November 22nd 2013 on both standard cinemas and IMAX.
“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” begins as Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a “Victor’s Tour’ of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) – a competition that could change Panem forever.
